7 Things Every Opening Act Should Do

I was perusing one of my favorite music blogs, DroptheR.net and came across a link to a really great article by indie rapper Kosha Dillz (@koshadillz) on Hypoebot that talked about the 7 things every opening act should do.  As someone who has been in a variety of groups and who has many friends in touring bands, everything point Kosha made had me shaking my head in agreement. Regardless of genre, the size of the crowd or even your current mood, there is something to be said about paying dues, supporting the people who gave you that opening slot and making the most out of every opportunity.  This is a really good read and I highly suggest every up-and-coming artist take a few minutes to check it out.

“Dear opening act. Dear support act. Your job is more than just open and support. I learned a couple things this past Channukah while I was on tour with Matisyahu. The things is, I think lots of acts go out on tour but not everyone ever gets the chance to go on a properly run tour. If you ever do (which ideally you will after various runs on your own merit) there are some things you can learn and a lot more than you think. There is a reason why they stay on top and can continue to bring in lots of people. Luckily, they thought you were good enough to get the opening slot and you will set the tone of the night. At the end of the night, you will be remembered enough.”
